Biography of John B. Hollowell
Yates County, NY Biographies





Hollowell, John B., was born in the town of Milo on the farm on which he now resides on October 5, 1820. He was the son of Joseph and Eleanor Hollowell, old and highly respected residents. Joseph was a shoemaker by trade, but took to farming as a more suitable occupation. Both he and his wife died on the farm now occupied by John B. The latter has always lived on this farm, but the improvements he has made have entirely changed its appearance. John B. Hollowell married Mercy E. Sprague, and to them have been born six children: Eleanor, De Witt, Olive, John, Alice and Franc. He is a prominent member, steward and class leader of the M. E. Church at Milo Center. In politics he has been a Republican, but is now a staunch Prohibitionist.
